ABSTRACT Mannitol is a polyol that occurs in a wide range of living organisms, where it fulfills different physiological roles. In particular, mannitol can account for as much as 20 to 30% of the dry weight of brown algae and is likely to be an important source of carbon for marine heterotrophic bacteria. Zobellia galactanivorans (Flavobacteriia) is a model for the study of pathways involved in the degradation of seaweed carbohydrates. Annotation of its genome revealed the presence of genes… Expand
Identification of mannitol as compatible solute in Gluconobacter oxydans
TLDR
Gluconobacter oxydans is an industrially important bacterium owing to its regio- and enantio-selective incomplete oxidation of various sugars, alcohols, and polyols, and the accumulation and transport of solutes are hallmarks of osmoadaptation. Expand
Global Analysis of Mannitol 2-Dehydrogenase in Lactobacillus reuteri CRL 1101 during Mannitol Production through Enzymatic, Genetic and Proteomic Approaches
TLDR
Deep insight is offered into the polyol formation by a Lactobacillus strain with biotechnological potential in the nutraceutics and pharmaceutical areas by observing that MDH was markedly induced by the presence of fructose. Expand
Habitat and taxon as driving forces of carbohydrate catabolism in marine heterotrophic bacteria: example of the model algae-associated bacterium Zobellia galactanivorans DsijT.
TLDR
Physiological and biochemical tests revealed that Z. galactanivorans stores and recycles glycogen, despite loss of several classic glycogen-related genes, indicating that this bacterium is well equipped to form profitable, stable interactions with macroalgae. Expand
The agar-specific hydrolase ZgAgaC from the marine bacterium Zobellia galactanivorans defines a new GH16 protein subfamily
TLDR
An enzyme from the marine bacterium Zobellia galactanivorans (ZgAgaC) that is distantly related to the glycoside hydrolase 16 (GH16) family β-agarases and β-porphyranases is studied and it is demonstrated that ZgAGAC hydrolyzes not only agarose but also complex agars from Ceramiales species. Expand
Adaptive mechanisms that provide competitive advantages to marine bacteroidetes during microalgal blooms
TLDR
This study reveals that genome reduction, enzyme fusions, transporters, and enzyme expansion as well as a tight coupling of carbon and nitrogen metabolism provide the tools, which make Formosa spp. Expand
A giant virus infecting green algae encodes key fermentation genes.
TLDR
The TetV genome is the largest sequenced to date for a virus that infects a photosynthetic organism, and its genes reveal unprecedented mechanisms by which viruses manipulate their host's metabolism. Expand
Isolation and Complete Genome Sequence of Algibacter alginolytica sp. nov., a Novel Seaweed-Degrading Bacteroidetes Bacterium with Diverse Putative Polysaccharide Utilization Loci
TLDR
This work reveals that strain HZ22T has good potential for the degradation of algal polysaccharides and that the structure and related mechanism of PUL in strain Hz22T are worth further research. Expand
Carrageenanolytic enzymes from marine bacteria associated with the red alga Tichocarpus crinitus
TLDR
One hundred six bacterial strains were isolated from the Pacific red alga Tichocarpus crinitus, collected from the Troitsa Bay of Gulf of Peter the Great, and studied on their ability to degrade different samples of carrageenan as substrates to find strains with the highest enzyme activity. Expand
Polyunsaturated fatty acids-enriched lipid from reduced sugar alcohol mannitol by marine yeast Rhodosporidiobolus fluvialis Y2.
TLDR
This is the first study on mannitol-induced synthesis of lipids enriched with polyunsaturated fatty acids by marine yeast, and suggests that NADH-dependent fatty acid desaturases in R. fluvialis Y2 may contribute to the cold-flow properties of biodiesel fuels. Expand
Characterization of a novel regulatory pathway for mannitol metabolism and its coordination with biofilm formation in Mycobacterium smegmatis.
TLDR
A regulatory pathway for the mannitol metabolism and its coordination with the biofilm formation in M. smegmatis is explored, finding that the D-mannitol molecule can derepress the negative regulation of Ms5575 on the mmt operon to stimulate the operon's expression. Expand

Mannitol metabolism in brown algae involves a new phosphatase family.
TLDR
Sequence analysis and three-dimensional homology modelling indicated that EsM1Pases, and their orthologues in Prasinophytes, should be seen as founding members of a new family of phosphatase with original substrate specificity within the HAD superfamily of proteins. Expand
Mannitol-1-phosphate dehydrogenase activity in Ectocarpus siliculosus, a key role for mannitol synthesis in brown algae
TLDR
Gene expression experiments carried out on samples harvested through the diurnal cycle, and after several short-term saline and oxidative stress treatments, showed that EsM1PDH1 is the most highly expressed of these genes, whatever the conditions tested. Expand
Salt-Regulated Mannitol Metabolism in Algae
TLDR
This review focuses on the metabolism of mannitol, mainly in marine photosynthetic organisms, and suggests how this might be applied to producing salt-tolerant transgenic plants. Expand
Characterization of the first alginolytic operons in a marine bacterium: from their emergence in marine Flavobacteriia to their independent transfers to marine Proteobacteria and human gut Bacteroides.
TLDR
In-depth phylogenomic analyses reveal that such alginolytic operons originated from an ancestral marine flavobacterium and were independently transferred to marine proteobacteria and Japanese gut Bacteroides, gaining the capacity to assimilate the main polysaccharide of brown algae, an adaptive advantage in coastal environments but also in the gut microbiota of specific human population.

Purification and Characterization of a Novel Mannitol Dehydrogenase from a Newly Isolated Strain of Candida magnoliae
TLDR
C. magnoliae MDH showed high substrate specificity and high catalytic efficiency for fructose only, which may explain the high mannitol production observed in this strain, and showed a significant homology with SDRs from various sources, indicating that the C. magnaea MDH is an NAD(P)H-dependent tetrameric SDR.

The Genome of the Alga-Associated Marine Flavobacterium Formosa agariphila KMM 3901T Reveals a Broad Potential for Degradation of Algal Polysaccharides
TLDR
The generation and analysis of the genome of the type strain of Formosa agariphila revealed the capacity to degrade a wide range of algal polysaccharides from green, red, and brown algae and thus a strong specialization of toward an alga-associated lifestyle. Expand
Properties of recombinant ATP-dependent fructokinase from the halotolerant methanotroph Methylomicrobium alcaliphilum 20Z
TLDR
The enzyme catalyzes ATP-dependent phosphorylation of fructose into fructose-6-phosphate but is not active with other sugars as phosphoryl acceptors, and shows the highest similarity of translated amino acid sequence with putative fructokinases of methylotrophic and autotrophic proteobacteria.

TLDR
A hypothetical protein from the marine bacterium Zobellia galactanivorans is characterized, which is in fact a 1,3-α-3,6-anhydro-l-galactosidase (AhgA) which catalyses the last step in the degradation pathway of agars, a family of polysaccharides unique to red macroalgae. Expand

TLDR
It is demonstrated here that AlyA1PL7 is an endolytic guluronate lyase, and AlyA5 cleaves unsaturated units, α-l-guluronate or β-d-manuronate residues, at the nonreducing end of oligo-alginates in an exolytic fashion, suggesting an exquisite adaptation to their natural substrate in the context of brown algal cell walls.
